Once again, fisher-folks and other participants will be rewarded for their skill and expertise in the art of Fish-Boning and Greasy Pole Climbing in the Oistins Festival.
Local Restaurant Chain Chefette, first started sponsoring the Festival’s Fish-Boning Competition since 1985, having establishing its presence in the fishing community of Oistins. After a short break in 2012, Chefette renewed its sponsorship in 2018 and also included the Greasy Pole Climbing competitions.
Recently at Chefette’s Corporate Office, Lisa Carter, Advertising Manager, presented Toni Thorne, Chairman of the Oistins Festival Committee with the sponsorship cheque. On receiving the cheque, Ms. Thorne said, “Our Oistins Festival team is extremely elated to be once again affiliated with Chefette for the 2019 festivities. Chefette represents all that we aspire to be, a great Bajan brand which pays homage to tradition but also welcomes new innovations and creative thinking”. She went on to say, “From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you.”
In response, Advertising Manager, Lisa Carter, said “we are happy to be onboard again with this community based festival. Chefette has been a long standing supporter and an integral part of the Oistins Community since 1985. We look forward to a competitive Fish Boning event and some keenly contested Greasy Pole Climbing.”
One of the two Greasy Pole Climbing competitions will be held on Saturday April 20th. On Monday April 22nd – Easter Monday, the Fish Boning and the other Greasy Pole Climbing competition will take place.
